We're excited to bring you another in a series of profiles to introduce you to a few of our artisans coming to the 7th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show on Saturday and Sunday, November 28th-29th. This is just one in a series of Vendor Spotlights where we let those who will be sharing their wares shine a light on what it is they do. The following profile is Amy and Greg from Little Chicago Clothing Co. and their response to a mini-questionnaire.
1). What's your name and what is it that you make?
We are Greg & Amy Eibel of Little Chicago Clothing Co. We design and hand-print apparel focused on community pride in the Canton/Akron area & Ohio.
2). How did you acquire the unique skill set to do what it is you do?
Amy is an art teacher and practicing artist, so her design and screen printing skills came through her art studio background.
3). What is your best seller?
Our current best sellers are our Buckeye-themed designs (given the fall football fever), but it often depends upon the time of year and the event location!
4). How long have you been vending? Have you done a Crafty Mart show before?
We launched our company in March of 2015, and we've been growing like crazy ever since! It's been quite a wild ride, and we're thrilled with the support we've received. We are so thrilled to have encountered so many people who want to share their state and community pride through our designs.
This is our first BIG Crafty Mart, but we did a pop-up Crafty Mart in July at the Canton Museum of Art, and it was a huge success. We met so many wonderful people!
5). Coffee or tea?
COFFEE all the way.
Thank you for answering our questions Amy and Greg. And, thanks for coming to the 7th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show. We'll see everyone on Sat. & Sun. Nov. 28th-29th at Musica, Akron Art Museum, and Summit Artspace. You'll be able to find Little Chicago Clothing Co. at Summit Artspace.
